What is going to be is what is, that is love….

What is going to be is what is, that is love….

There is a beautiful snow peaked mountain
With peaceful clouds wrapped round her shoulders.
The surrounding air is filled with love and peace.
What is going to be is what is,
That is love.
There is no fear of leaping into the immeasurable space of love.
Fall in love?
Or, are you in love?
Such questions cannot be answered,
Because in this peace of an all-pervading presence,
No one is in and no one is falling in.
No one is possessed by another.
I see a beautiful playground
Which some may call heaven,
Others may regard it as a trap of hell.
But, I, Chögyam, don’t care.
In the playground beautiful Dakinis are holding hand drums, flutes and bells.
Some of them, who are dancing, hold naked flames, water, a nightingale,
Or the whole globe of earth with the galaxies around it.
These Dakinis may perform their dance of death or birth or sickness,
I am still completely intoxicated, in love….

– Chögyam Trungpa, 6 August 1969

listen to the whole poem

And me? … I wake each morning and listen to this poem by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche…raise my hands to the sky and choose life…then attempt to pay attention to the signs in a natural world that speaks to me..
